The so-called "elementary" edition of Vocabulary Cartoons is not elementary enough. "Ductile", "succor", and "capacious" are words whose meanings are more advanced than I was hoping for. I was also disappointed in the structure. I assumed from the title and from the cover information that words would be introduced through comic strip stories. Instead, the book is just a series of word-picture associations with no real story or funny taglines. It's probably a good book for junior high or high school students, but is above the elementary level.
